Deciding to leave his easy life in Santa Clara Valley, Buck Miller, the son of a wealthy judge and raisin farmer, pursues gold riches in the Klondike. Before he reaches his destination, Buck is kidnapped by vampires, turned into a werewolf, and forced to work as the vampire's sled dog.

Now, in an unfamiliar place and in an unfamiliar body, Buck must learn to survive more than just the brutal weather. With attacks from vicious werewolves and abuse from his masters, will Buck be able to regain his humanity or will he spend the rest of his days living as a wolf?


This a mashup story. It combines Jack London's classic, The Call of the Wild, with the werewolf mythology in my Merlin's Hoods world.

It is in the same vein as Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith's mashup novel, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Instead of adding zombies, I've added werewolves and vampires.

Mashup stories are a creative novelty. The idea is to create a new story by adding as few words to the original story as possible. So, most of the words in this story are Jack London's.

I love werewolves and the protagonist, Buck Miller, is a powerful werewolf in my Merlin's Hood world. This is his origin story.

About the Author:


Born John Griffith Chaney in 1876, Jack London, was known for his socialist views, atheism, and outspoken racial prejudices. Jack got his start as a journalist writing for Overland Monthly later going on to author his first novel The Call of The Wild in 1903 about a dog's life pulling sleds in the Yukon. Also a contributor for Hearst Papers in 1904, Jack London earned the credit for introducing Americans to travel and surf in Hawaii. Author of White Fang, The People of The Abyss, and John Barleycorn, a book about his personal battle with alcoholism, Jack's fiction mirrored much of his own life of poverty from birth into adulthood. Jack London died in 1916. Jack London's death was rumored a suicide.


Carl Waters, born and raised in Miami, Florida, grew up reading comic books and dreamed of being a new kind of superhero. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree from the University of Miami and moved to Atlanta, Georgia, where he now lives with his wife and daughter. Waters never forgot his childhood dreams, which over the years transformed into a desire to create new heroes, particularly African-American male heroes, through writing. His debut offering is Burning Uncle Tom’s Cabin, the first book in a four-part series that reimagines Harriet Beecher Stowe’s classic novel, featuring strong characters who break out of the old stereotypes.
